Im still not sure about how I feel about Las Casas.
On one hand, I couldn't deny that all those buildings in one place does result into something beautiful to look at ??" an architectural orgasm, if you will. On the other, there's something wrong with its idea of conservation. I mean, is it really conservation when you're plucking a thing from its original source? I don't think so.
Although I am feeling just a bit anxious with how fast time flies, I also feel fulfillment from all the things I was able to accomplish during the first part of the year. First, I was able to catch TWO of my most favorite bands (Coldplay and Goo Goo Dolls) live in concert. And second, I was able to travel out of the country three times in just 6 months (Singapore, Korea Spring, Korea Summer)! Hoping and praying for more to come!
This is a Spanish era inspired resort in the shore of Bataan. It will take 4 hours to get here from Manila.
The current fare is P200.
There are a lot of buses bound to Bataan. We took the Genesis bus liner along the EDSA Cubao. You can just tell the driver to drop you in the Bataan junction where you can ride a local bus bound to Bagak or simply to Las Casas, locals know it.
Aside from the beautiful beaches and other historical places in Bataan, there is one place in Bagac, Bataan that has really interested me and I have been wanting to go for a visit. Luckily, I had some visitors who arrived from overseas and I told them with no hesitation that I would like to take them to LAS CASAS FILIPINAS DE ACUZAR.
Cliff jumping at Sugong Cave, Bagac, Bataan is one of the BEST ACHIEVEMENT EVER in my life!!! Whooohooo!!! This must be included in your itinerary if you will be visiting Playa La Caleta.
I haven't tried this before but it seems so easy while watching some jumpers from our boat. When my foot stepped on this cave I was the first one in our group who went to the top of the cliff. But after I saw how high the cliff was from the top my knees started to be shaky. It took 36 minutes with many attempts and cheers from the crowd before I finally jumped in the cliff.
Prize: Te ...
Travel back in time! Here's a quick film showing the history of the beautiful spanish-era houses here in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar.
